John Henson’s game-winning put-back at buzzer lifts Bucks over Nets

John Henson

John Henson made himself the hero of Saturday night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets.

With the score knotted at 108, Bucks power forward Jabari Parker drove past Trevor Booker and attempted a right-handed layup in traffic — after falling short, Henson scooped the offensive rebound with 1.2 seconds to go and put it back up, as it bounced on the rim and in.

Henson only played 21 minutes and led the team with 12 rebounds (two offensive), none more important than this last-second put-back to give the Bucks their first win of the season.

The North Carolina standout will have to battle for minutes with a frontcourt consisting of Parker, Greg Monroe and Miles Plumlee — but performances like these will definitely stick in the eyes of head coach Jason Kidd.
